Prisons and Terrorism: Radicalisation and De-radicalisation in 15 Countries


Prisons and Terrorism: Radicalisation and De-radicalisation in 15 Countries

Abstract: 

At the Peace and Security Summit in New York, ICSR launched its latest report, ‘Prisons and Terrorism: Radicalisation and De-radicalisation in 15 Countries’.  Based on a survey of prison policies in 15 countries, the report offers the most comprehensive study to date of the role prisons can play in radicalising people – and in reforming them.  The report identifies trade-offs and dilemmas but also principles and best practices that will help governments and policymakers spot new ideas and avoid costly and counterproductive mistakes.
